Are there any true leaders left in America?

By Sylvia's Thoughts

My fellow Americans, this time next year the country will be getting ready to elect, or re-elect, a president. Unfortunately it will once again be only a person with a title and position, for we ran out of leaders, of any color, in America a long time ago. You see leadership has nothing to do with position, title, influence or authority. Leadership, ladies and gentlemen, is about servanthood. A true leader has a servant’s heart. A true leader is the first one in and the last to leave. A true leader eats only after all of his people have eaten. A true leader protects and defends those he swore allegiance to; even at the risk of personal loss.A true leader is honest and has integrity whether or not it makes him unpopular. A true leader watches over those least able to help themselves; the poor, the elderly and the disabled, and does not steal from them. The absence of leaders is countrywide and across the board; not only federal government but state, county and city as well. And the biggest problem is we keep mistaking celebrities for leaders.
